Songs From My Past: The Beautiful Ones

The memories and feelings are so loaded on this one that to speak too much on it would feel like desecration.  The days in which this song – indeed, this whole album – felt like a script of my life are almost 30 years gone, and yet when I hear this song my heart still quickens.  It was 1984, and that summer my cousin and I were completely obsessed with Prince’s When Doves Cry album – we spent the summer in my aunt’s house in Ealing Park in Barbados (which was, unfortunately, downwind of a chicken farm), and drifted through the days in a reverie with this album as our soundtrack.
